One of Alan's favorite past times is going on drives with Ly. They pack up the car with snacks, music, cameras, binoculars, blankets, pillows, and of course piou and panda (they have adventures) and then jump in the car. Sometimes Alan has a secret plan of where he wants to explore and sometimes he just drives wherever the road takes him.
Recent excursions have included drives to pumpkin patches, apple orchards and the local mountains to enjoy the colors of fall. Ly loves fall. The air is crisp, the trees change all sorts of beautiful colors, animals are out gathering food before the snowstorms hit...and it is perfect photo taking weather.
